University Health Care System in Augusta has contributed $50,000 to Aiken Technical College toward the construction of the Center for Energy and Advanced Manufacturing.

The proposed $8 milliion building will support the college’s growing radiation protection technology, nuclear quality systems, welding and mechatronics programs.

Other recent pledges and contributions include $100,000 from Shaw AREVA MOX Services, $60,000 from security contractor WSI and $150,000 from Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.

The center also has received a $2 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, which requires a $2 million match from other sources.
